Despite the high offer, the Jets are after more picks in potential Revis trade.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are reported to be willing to offer their first round pick in this year’s draft in order to acquire Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets, however the Jets are after more than just that pick.
It is well documented the Buccaneers are the team that want Revis the most. They have the cap space to sign him and are the most desperate to improve a secondary that ranked last in the league in 2012.
There have been talks between the teams about suitable trade offers between the teams, with the Buccaneers refusing to give up a first round pick.
However the latest rumour suggests that this may no longer be the case.
Pro Football Talk has reported that the NFC South team are willing to include their first round pick this season, which is the number 13 overall choice, as part of the deal.
This addition to the potential deal shows just how much the Bucs want Revis, as going up against elite QB’s in Drew Brees and Matt Ryan twice a season will be a lot easier if they had the league’s best cornerback on their side.
While the 27-year old is worth multiple picks in a trade, coming off his ACL tear, there will undoubtedly be questions raised regarding his health and durability, as the injury will have no doubt left a mark on his agility and mobility, to things crucial to playing cornerback in the NFL.
it seems set that Revis will end up at the Buccaneers during this off-season, it is just a matter of how much Tampa are willing to give up for him.
